Campus Housing: IU is a really nice place, everyone is very friendly

1 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I doubt if I ever have or ever will despised anything as much as I despise the IU Greek system.

Athletics: Don't bother going to football games, because no matter what anyone's told you, we will find a way to lose even the simplest games.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: You get what you pay for. For $300/month, I lived in a basement that flooded, didn't lock, and was frequently open to the elements. For $1000/month, I now live in a nice, 3 br, 1.5 bath duplex.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: This is the only town I've ever lived in where you can get Thai food delivered at 9 pm.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The administration does everything it can to fight IU's reputation as the biggest party school. Whatever they're doing isn't working that well, though.

5 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: If you can't find a party, walk no more than a block in any direction and you will find at least three.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: They have very good merit-based scholarships, but otherwise getting money is a hassle.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Most of the famous dining halls (most notably Wright & Gresham) serve some variation (and I'm being generous with the word "variation") of the same thing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I was a fifth year senior and still living in the campus housing. It was comfortable and warm.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There's no way not to find a party to go to! There will always be one when you want one!

Scholarships: Fill it out as soon as possible. Keep track of all the information you are going to need and take a day or two to fill it out to make sure you have everything correct.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining halls are easily accessible, have a pretty good variety, and a great discount. Personally, I ran out of meal points one semester, but most people have a lot left over. The food does get boring after a while, but it does get people to try new things.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms, overall, are well kept and in great locations. Some, however, do not have air conditioning which makes them very hot at night. Other than that, the dorms are great, have a lot of storage, and allow you to meet so many new and interesting people.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The main problem I see with off-campus housing is how early we have to sign leases. I am a sophomore and have to sign a lease for my senior year by the end of this year. So crazy.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many options to choose from. Italian, Indiana, Chinese, Japanese, Pizza, and more. There is a place for anything you are craving and at any time!

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The police are great. However, if you park somewhere with out paying the meter for 2 minutes you will get a ticket.

Party Scene: I love the party scene at IU. However, whether people want to admit it or not Greek life is the main party scene and if you are not apart of it you really don't get a full party scene experience as the Greek community.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have recently begun the financial aid process so I am really not sure. I think the main concern and thing to think about is the fact that out of state tuition for students is like $30,000 more dollars than in state tuition. I will be debt forever because of that.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Gresh food court is gross. I found a fly in the salad bar once and mold on my bagel. It is gross and I lived in foster so it was the closest most convenient place to go. Forest, however, is delicious. It is a little bit over priced but it is so good and I would go there every day if I could.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are great. However, some do not have air conditioning and some classified among social life as the "party dorms" are dirty. My dorm was wonderful though. The social atmosphere is great especially in greek life.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Whether you are a part of Greek life on campus or not you can find somewhere to go party. Sometimes it's too convenient and it might have a negative impact on your school work.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's a difficult process but once you complete it the aid should be worth your while.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I live in Forest and while Woodlands has very good food, I got sick of it really quickly. I enjoy going to Wright often now.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is very convenient living in a dorm on campus I live in Forest and I'm almost always less than a 10 minute walk to classes and I have a food court right downstairs.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

IU is a well-rounded school, excelling in everything from academics to athletics. The fact that it offers something for almost everyone is the testimony given by the student body; over 40,000 kids from all over the world found IU and have made it their home for four years or more. IU’s campus is an original place in an isolated little town, and while it may be in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t take long for most students to find something that makes it feel a little more like home.

Most of the complaints about IU involve its large size, and if you’re looking for the kind of school where everybody knows everyone else’s names, this isn’t the right place for you. However, the faculty, staff, and general population of Indiana University all work together to make an otherwise intimidating atmosphere feel a bit more accepting. There are so many opportunities here that your experience at IU is undoubtedly what you make of it. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to gain admission, you don’t have to be a long-time binge-drinker to have a great social life, and you barely even have to leave your dorm room to make friends. Ultimately, these are just a few of the many positives that make the college experience in Bloomington, Indiana the most memorable and most educational years of your life.
